List of Crystal Bead Manufacturers?

List of Crystal Bead Manufacturers?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I was wondering if anyone has a list of crystal bead manufacturers. I’m familiar with Swarovski, of course, and Preciosa, but those are the only ones that I ever hear named.

I know there are others out there. Can anyone help me with that?

    Have you tried FireMountainGems.com they offer different types of crystal beads at varying prices.

    Asfour is a beautiful leaded crystal. Fire Mountain carries a few beads & mostly pendants/drops/suncatchers. You can google to see who else might carry them. Then there are Chinese crystals but I think they might just be faceted glass—not sure. They are pretty, sparkly & I like them. You can find some at Auracrystals, Beadcorp & a few other shops. Hope this helps!

    China produces some beautiful faceted beads. Whether or not there is a lead content to qualify as crystal, I don’t know. There are jewelry suppliers on Etsy that carry beads and charms from China. Check out BohemianFindings on Etsy.

    There are Thunder Polish crystal beads sold by Beadcorp but they’re not very good IMHO. Nothing compares to Swarovski.
